Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Do you realize that after a large sysmic event, after shocks (which can be many) can carry the same or near same intensity as the original event. This last midterm election should have changed the tone and landscape going forward and made Obama the lame duck he deserves to be. It hasn’t and the last vestiges of the liberal Senate are putting in their licks also.

It appears that carnage and woe upon the citizens is the end game going forward. Obama seems to be looking at two things here. First, he isn’t sure if the albatross around his neck called Obamacare will ever remain intact;the healthcare system going forward and his legacy. Second, to cover all bases for being remembered (OMG, Barack. How could we EVER forget you?!) and to snub our system of government, as well the citizens that put a cabosh on the Senate further covering his ass and taking the heat for him, he is moving forward with items that will be a nightmare for future administrations to get a hold of. Obama seems to be breaking the bottle after releasing the Genie. Talk about vindictive. If nothing else, going forward, Obama will be the reason for the legislative branch of government curtailing the power of future presidents from ever getting this criminal and reckless again. I expected more of the legislature than what we are getting. I never expected more of Obama. Certainly not more turmoil and criminality. Unless the citizens can personally have representatives incarcerated for dereliction of duty, I see two years of grief that will take us over the brink. I can’t afford anymore of this. Normalization of relations with Cuba is just the latest snub. What will happen tomorrow?

That’s right. It appears that she feels a need to declassify information that will give dates, names and occurrences where the CIA used torture to extract information from enemy individuals. Well, the torture issue is not new. What happened was some tapes from an enemy combatant were erased by the CIA to save lives. Feinstein and her committee decided to investigate the CIA and the CIA starting looking……with interest….into Dianne Feinstein. This is more a case of ruffled feathers than anything else. Also, because the Senate will change political sides come January; if Feinstein doesn’t release this report now, the new Senate will never let it get released. So for ruffled feathers and for little, if any, new information on tactics and techniques, Feinstein will put American lives in peril, as well as make it near impossible for future endeavors to get intel from foreign nationals or governments. It is hard to fathom how 8 years of a Dem president and 8 years of a Dem Senate with 4 years of a Dem House could set back this country 60 to 80 years. How do you explain this stuff to grandbabies and great grandbabies, who ask you how it came about and why was it allowed to come about.

A little local news to cleanse the palate. Loudoun County Public Schools are considering asking Richmond for permission to charge students for riding the bus.

I saw this story and it made me ask: “Why are we having such budget problems in Loudoun that local officials are actually considering making parents pay for bus rides to school?” (Read the full story is here)

Some are saying that this is proof that sprawl does not work and that taxes are too low in Loudoun

A few takeaway questions:

- Considering that children pay for lunch, why would it not be reasonable to pay for the bus ride?

- Are taxes too low in Loudoun? If the county is spending too much, then where’s the waste? (not saying there’s no waste, just want to know). Also consider that Loudoun County can’t afford to build new roads because the new developments are so spread apart.

- Are our local elected officials focused too much on policies that promote sprawl? Considering that we can not even transport our children to school with out having to consider levying some type of fee because schools and housing are too far flung and budgets are not covering the needs, the answer to that question is probably “yes”.

- If we are having budget troubles now, just imagine how much fun it will be once Loudoun has to pitch in to pay for the Metro in about 5 years or so.

By the way. It is racist to refer to these Ferguson protestors as “looters”. I suggest “undocumented shoppers”:

My, my! What a nation we will be leaving to the Mexicans…

So all of a sudden, the great and mighty Harry Reid cowers after a devastating mid-term election, still being Senate Majority Leader, and cuts loose with a vote on the Keystone Pipeline. Why? Hasn’t done it for 5 years and said it wouldn’t come up for a vote……until now. Oh, right, Landrieu got it pushed in the Senate because she is so well liked and influential. Ok, but it needs 60 votes to go before the president, Mary; not 59. Of those 59, all 45 Republicans and 14 Democrat Senators pushed for it. Neither of the Independent Democrats voted pro, as usual. So we didn’t get to see if Obama would veto it and Mary doesn’t have the influence she portends. I saw it as a waste of time until the new congress comes in but it is worthy to note what will ensue.

Landrieu ain’t going to make it in the run-off election, and if this WAS NOT the reason for pushing forward this vote, it will be interesting how the next vote will transpire. You see, the GOP will go from 45 votes to 53 votes in the new congress. If those same 14 Democrats vote on the new passage (and why wouldn’t they since they just demonstrated that this issue needs to move forward and quickly), then Congress will have the 60 votes necessary to move it to Obama’s desk for passage or veto. Now here is where the rubber meets the road. Was this current vote a ruse to dupe American citizens of the Senates’ intent to actually save a Democrat seat rather than cheaper oil and good jobs for Americans? If not, Obama will be facing a 67 pro vote veto. That would be called a two-thirds majority and an override. Would he be so brash, arrogant and stupid to actually veto the bill? Oh, brother. I relish the new year. So many great and revealing circumstances coming to bare.

Why is the question I tend to ask. You have a liberal agenda that has failed every step of the way. At each turn, when that specific item on the agenda is questioned, dodges, spin, division and lies are thrown in our face to keep us at bay. At least till the next agenda item comes forefront. Now I agree with Gruber about the American people being stupid: not all of them, mind you, just the stupid ones. So why would the conservatives or Republicans feel uneasy about not appeasing those stupid Americans. I sure wouldn’t. Look where that philosophy has gotten them and us so far.

It is time, now, to start setting the agenda for the new Congress. Obama-the-petulant-child wants to go in front of the mic with immigration reform. Let him. Let him pull that cart on his own. Any other idiots that want to hitch their horses to that cart, well, let them do it also. They can all go down in flames together. As far as ANY agenda THIS Congress going forward; the only thing I see that needs negotiation is the budget extension. Let them play with just that for a bit…..and a short bit at that. Like a couple of months worth. Then with the new Congress they can start cutting back the pork and funding only things essential for our citizens. We don’t need the help of those Dems who refused to clean their own house and do things right for America. The pipeline has been waiting for almost 6 years. It can wait a few more months.

I see things like this: the Dems made this mess with their own rules. Soon they will not be the majority of power and want things fairer on the playing field. They also want to change the rules back to what they were to have the opportunity to obstruct again. Why in God’s name would a sane person even consider that? How many times before has this happened where the American citizen gets burned because of a “benevolent party” doing what is “right and fair”? The rules have been made and set. Let them Dems live and learn from their mistakes…..as we all have had to. Let them purge the crap from their party. Let Obama’s last 2 years be as Bush’s were. Let’s give the American people what they voted for and take away from the stupid people.

So all this time that the “informed” have been telling you that Obamacare is a scam, no one wants to listen. The Senate and House said the bill needed to be passed in order to find out what is in it……like it is a present waiting to be opened. So now, one of the chief architects decides to shoot of his mouth and rub it in your stupid faces; very bluntly, I might add. Remember, this is the superior Democrat party that knows what is best for everyone. Why? Because they feel the American people are too stupid to know what is best for them. In a sense, this statement is partially true. Those stupid voters that continue to believe the lies and vote Dem prove it every election. But what this video proves to me is that those individuals that voted for this bill in Congress are even more stupid than the American populace being besmirched here. They had a closed door meeting or two and we’re told that it was a way to get the poor health insurance and would also put these politicians in high regard with the people. Yup, the last couple elections proved that one. So we know that those who passed Obamacare in Congress lied, Emmanual lied. Gruber lied. The chief liar Obama did what he does best—he lied also. Good case for repeal. Better case for forcing vacancies in political positions. Best case to put members of the Congress and the administration, as well private contributors to this bill, in residence at the grey bar hotel. How much more do we need to eliminate this bad law?
